Serving North Devon for over 15 years – no job too big or small and we don’t charge VAT either!

Working in conjunction with  Finishing Touches,  we offer our clients a bespoke curtain and soft furnishing service as well along with fitting and hanging curtains & blinds in your newly decorated rooms.

Mark started working as a sub-contractor working to a high standard, cleanly and efficiently in domestic environments and on new build properties. He works to a high standard with detail to the finer points, such as keeping fittings and furnishings clean, ensuring surfaces were sanded down to a smooth finish and generally overseeing the little things that make all the difference in ensuring a high quality finish.

How we differ from others

What we do is to equip ourselves with everything we need to execute high-class work on all of the projects we work on. We aim to be punctual, friendly, and efficient everything you would hope to find in a professional painter & decorator. We pride ourselves on treating customers and their property and possessions how we would like to be treated if we were the customers and we always leave a finished room in a clean and tidy state.


There will be an initial consultation just so we know exactly what you want to make your home your dream home. No matter what business, we will work just as hard for each.

We cater for both domestic and commercial painting and decorating to suit all budgets. In addition to standard painting and decorating, we can also provide custom work for more complex areas or effects. We are happy to either work to your instructions or offer free advice if you aren’t sure about what you want.


We use a full range of paints and wallpapers including Crown, Dulux, Laura Ashley, Farrow & Ball, Fired Earth to name a few. We can also cater for the environmentally friendly customer by using water borne paints such as Earthborne which uses natural ingredients and, where possible, sustainable sources.

How We Work

We don’t cut any corners in our work; all the materials we use are industry-standard good quality paints, wallpaper, brushes and rollers. We can also work with any materials (such as paint or wallpaper) you wish to provide, just let us know when you ask for a quote. We have tools and equipment on hand to reach even the trickiest places.

Painted Kitchens

We are best known for our painted kitchens which are expertly primed with two coats of tough white undercoat. Then they are ready for hand painting in any colour you choose. Painted kitchens allow you complete freedom to control the look of your furniture – our cabinets are a blank canvas. You can even experiment with several colours, a pattern, or a distressed finish… The choice is yours.

What’s more, this method allows you to change the colour of your kitchen at a later point if you decide to refresh your kitchen scheme. You can also easily change the handles to create an entirely different look, adding even more longevity to your investment.

Client Testimonials

” Having used Mark before at a previous property I was very pleased he was willing to travel up to Wiltshire to carry out an array of tasks, many of which were re works caused by poor local tradesmen. I know Mark does a first class job and his attention to detail is second to none. Thanks Mark, it looks great and it was so reassuring to know I could trust that the end result would be to a high standard” Tania from Devizes
